Toronto, CANADA; September 6, 2022 – Co-hosted by the Blockchain Research Institute (BRI) and MCI Canada, registration is now open for Web3 & Blockchain World (W3B), to be held November 8-9, 2022 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada. Formerly known as Blockchain Revolution Global, W3B is a global event bringing together the foremost leaders, thinkers, and innovators in the Web3 ecosystem to educate, inspire, and prepare you to be part of the transformation that Web3 and blockchain are bringing to business, government, and society. The event, hosted online in 2020, had 210 speakers and attendees representing 45 countries. Over two thirds of attendees were senior management.
The overall theme for this year’s event is Digital Assets: Digital Transformation. Sponsored by important companies, including FedEx, Input Output, BTP, Prophecy DeFi, EY, and Hedera, the W3B program will explore how blockchain and Web3 are becoming the operating system of the next era of the digital age, enabling the digitization of all assets and the transformation of enterprises.
As the Presenting Media Partner, Fortune will provide full editorial coverage of the event. Speakers include Charles Hoskinson, CEO and Founder of Input Output, Rob Carter, Executive VP of FedEx Information Service and Chief Information Officer of FedEx Corporation, and Cleve Mesidor, Executive Director of the Blockchain Foundation. W3B is striving to achieve gender balance and diversity among its speakers.
“This November, we invite you to join us as we convene some of the best and brightest speakers from across the globe, along with some of the world’s most important companies” said Don Tapscott, Executive Chairman of the Blockchain Research Institute. “W3B 2022 will celebrate and explore how Web3 and blockchain are transforming business and industry ecosystems around the world.”
The November event will use a Canadian camp experience, which will include Main Lodge Keynotes, Fireside Chats, Campfire Sessions and other festive events. Sessions have been designed to maximize opportunities for interaction among invited experts and attendees—whether in-person or online.
Attendees will have the option to navigate between eight different thematic streams: Decentralized Finance (DeFi), Supply Chain Revolution, Web3 Platforms & DAOs, NFTs and Other Digital Assets, Environment Social and Governance (ESG), Digital Identity, The Metaverse & Hybrid Spaces, and Healthcare Revolution.
“We are looking forward to welcoming decision makers, innovators and blockchain trail blazers, for a newly designed experience at W3B 2022,” said Juliano Lissoni, Managing Director of MCI Canada. “We will be working diligently to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our participants at the MTCC, and we will be investing in a multi-platform execution to connect the world.”
